Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Attenborough
Released:
1977
Rating:
PG

The film takes place during World War II and chronicles the planning, organization, and eventual failure of the Allied Forces' Operation Market Garden. The conception of Operation Market Garden took place five years into the war, after D-Day had successfully allowed Allied troops to invade German-occupied Europe but the scope of the fighting had led to Allied forces becoming dangerously spread out with feeble supply lines. British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery hatched a plan to bring a quick end to the war, and the Allies rallied behind the plan. A Bridge Too Far tells the story of the brave men who nearly brought an end to the Second Great War.
